With the runaway success of Netflix’s Stranger Things, it appears that streaming competitor Hulu has signed on Stephen King and J.J. Abrams to craft a show along the same vein. Both took to Twitter Friday night to preview the upcoming project titled Castle Rock, named after the fictional Maine town that appears as the setting in a number of King’s books. The mysterious clip simply features various locations and characters from King’s extensive canon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The anthology will weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.” The duo previously worked on Hulu’s original series 11.22.63., which was also based off of one of King’s novels.
